Crimsix & Shotzzy win December 20th Code Red Gunfight Tournament

With the start of the Call of Duty League (CDL) still over a month away, the Code Red Gunfight tournaments taking place on Modern Warfare has been some of the only competitive action to be seen during the off-season. December 20th saw 16 teams battle it out for the lion’s share of $25,000 in prize money. Let’s take a look back at all the action.

Crimsix & Shotzzy Victorious

The Dallas Empire pairing of Ian “Crimsix” Porter and Anthony “Shotzzy” Cuevas-Castro was the last team standing after defeating Empire players James “Clayster” Eubanks” and Indervir “iLLeY” Dhaliwal in a highly competitive grand finale.

Clay and iLLeY managed to reset the bracket to take the final series all the way to a deciding map on Pine but it was Shotzzy with a well-timed shotgun shot who managed to secure the $13,000 first prize.

While the Dallas Empire locked out first and second place, the two-time Dr Disrespect and Call of Duty pro Matt “FormaL” Piper managed to secure third after falling to iLLeY and Clay in the lower bracket finals.

Shroud Out of the Money

Content creator and first-person shooter (FPS) beast Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek and fellow streamer Hannah “Bnans” Kennedy were certainly contenders for the tournament but failed to get anywhere near the top three after losing to Dr Disrespect and FormaL in the opening round before falling in the first round of the lower bracket. Despite losing they still managed to enjoy themselves though;

What Next for Code Red?

The December 20th running of the Code Red tournament marks the last 2v2 tournament of 2019. With plenty of big content creators and CDL players involved in the tournaments and lots of people supporting their favourite creators and players, it would be silly not to continue these tournaments heading into 2020.
